-sponsors and thank commissioner fewer and thank commissioner mendoza for their work on this issue and their presentation. thank you commissioner fewer for following up on the success rates of the credit recovery program. it's incredibly important that as requirements are increased that the district can provide resources to support them. their requirements are important to getting san francisco's young people to college, but we can't set them up to fail. i'm glad that the counselors will be having the meetings and i'm a little concerned that they won't do it by november 19th, seeing that we're in the midst of college application season. but hopefully, that will happen before the next school year. at the moment our joint education committee, which works with the student advisory council is working on a resolution addressing the achievement gap in san francisco at-large because we feel like this isn't just an issue of this one-time increase in requirements. if you look at the numbers, there are incredible disparities between communities and we think there needs to be long-term soluti

[applause] >> i want to tell you a little bit about old school cafe and i know supervisor cohen is very proud of this establishment as well, so old school cafe is a faith base violence prevention program providing jobs and training to youth with emphasis on at risk youth age 16 to 22 in a 1940 style supper club. they confront the epidemic of violence and providing at risk youth who were incarcerated or part of the foster youth program with a variety of opportunities not normally afforded to them. i wanted to share an exert from a recent article about old school because the person that started old school is phenomenal and i know you did that and she was a correction's office and she worked wit

by commissioner mendoza. if we can do that without objection. i will certainly bring this issue back and i think it makes sense for us to do so after -- sometime after the november election when we have a better sense of where things are. but i think that even if the measures pass, i think there is a lot more that the city has to do. and, by the way, one of the things that i am interested in doing and will be doing in the next couple of weeks is introducing a motion to expand the make-up of this committee or least to consider including city college. because i don't think we can have a full picture of how we're educating young people in the city without having city college at the table. so i look forward to that conversation. the last point that i will make is that i do want to acknowledge mr. hoover lydell, who is in the audience and the reason i want to acknowledge him because he has been an institution in the school district for many, many years. when i started as a lawyer working on the consent decree, hoover served as an expert in the court and i'm glad that the school district continues t
